Democrats have “dug a hole so deep” with the Mueller probe they don’t know how to get out of it and are doubling down on calls for Attorney General William Barr to release the special counsel’s full report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday.
“I think Democrats recognize that they are playing a losing hand,” he said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
“So that the only way to do this is to pivot further away from what they originally started at, which was just allowing Mueller to investigate this issue. Once he came up with a conclusion that wasn't what they wanted, they had to pivot to something else.”
Mueller's report, as summarized on March 24 by Barr, "did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Barr will release a redacted copy of Mueller’s report by mid-April, but Spicer said he “doesn’t have to do it according to law.”
There are “two issues with the current report – one is there’s grand jury testimony and, two, there’s classified information in it that he has to protect by law. … So Attorney General Barr is going above and beyond what he is required to do. And I think Democrats recognize that they are playing a losing hand.”
